Have You Ever To Prove You Are Clever?

So the cat watched the other day as some human did a simple thing at their bay. One that seemed dumb to me as I knew what it did at my sea. But still they did not know, so let's see who else gives them a go.

Have you ever,
To be clever,
Done a little thing,
Like this at your wing.

Walked into a room,
But oh the doom,
You forgot want you wanted,
Walked out, then it taunted?

Tried to prove you were a pro,
Neither high nor low,
Instead you got a middle itch,
Trying to balance between on/off with a light switch?

Open the fridge to get what you want,
Then close like it is a strange haunt,
Only to find out when the light went dark,
So you could know at what mark?

Walk on the street,
To your own beat,
Avoiding a crack,
Afraid to break your mother's back?

In a rush,
You really have to mush,
But instead you hit them all,
Buttons all glow as in the elevator you slowly fall?

Open the door,
But it won't let you explore,
You give it a good knock,
Only to find you forgot to turn the lock?

The day is clear,
The birds you hear,
That thing has to go,
So you chuck it out, rather at, a closed window?

You have to run,
Get out in the sun,
To scurry with the ants,
Oops, you forgot your pants?

I bet all have done one,
Of these the cat has given a run.
Hopefully not the last,
At least not in front of a cast.

So how many have you done? Each and every one? If so I'd avoid you. A danger to all at your zoo. The cat has seen Pat do one or two or maybe three. But he does swing from the crazy tree. But none of this mass has ever been done by my four legged little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

  2. Like an absent-minded professor
    Trying to pick up forms of cover
    They do it first
    Then a reverse
    And can still afford a small laughter

  3. I have had all of these, except the falling elevator and the forgetting my pants when going out.

    I do forget combing my hair a lot of times, though.

  4. WOW vivid images at every one
    All must have been tried under the sun
    Tossing through a window that is close
    Would put one in a sad repose
    To make that mistake I really must say
    Your housekeeping is better than mine any day

      All over your floor mat
      Or broke the window
      Or landed on your toe

  9. Haha, but all this writing
    keeps our brains sharp
    and rhyming,
    so we still remember
    why we went
    into that chamber,
    and don't forget
    to put our pants on, too
    before we leave our zoo! :)

  11. I have walked down the street
    to my very own own beat
    I must say it was rather neat
    walking on feather light feet

    In a rush much can be forgotten
    are your ears filled with cotton

    hope you are feeling better today
    as you dream at your far away bay...

  12. I thought as I read this
    that the cat was spying at my house
    because I've done the fridge and room thing a lot
    does that make me a louse?

  13. Suure, cat never forget to eat,
    he knows where and what treat-
    human has so many tasks
    that when you distract him
    and ask: how are you
    he can forget what on cue...

    It was winter, okay? I wear all black, all the time. I dress in LAYERS. So I run out of the house for work, down the stairs, and something feels a little strange...
    I look down, boots, coat, scarf, black long johns...wait, NO PANTS.

  21. One day perchance
    I didn't wear pants.
    Which gave folks such a fright.
    They ran, pell mell
    and even killed themselves.
    To avoid seeing such a sight.
